Details On The “Ultron” Italian Shoot

New details of the currently underway Northern Italy shoot of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” have emerged over at

Scenes shot in Piazza Cavalieri di Vittorio Veneto involve Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and a group of refugees escaping the wrath of Ultron (voiced by James Spader) with the help of a ‘dropship’.

Several exploding cars and an overturned bus are part of the scene, damage inflicted by Ultron himself. Scarlet Witch is said to use her powers to keep the robot at bay while the rest of them make their escape.

The filming at Fort di Bard in Valle D’Aosta is doubling for an Eastern European city known as Sokovia, with street signs spotted written in Serbian. A scene filmed yesterday involved Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) and his soldiers defending themselves from an attack by Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

Also today, a new retro poster is out for the upcoming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. Marvel commissioned the work from artist Paolo Rivera.
